Johnny English 3 in development
A third film about hapless spy Johnny English is in the pipeline at Working Title Films.
Rowan Atkinson is set to reprise his role of the bumbling secret agent – a character he first portrayed in the original film of 2003, written by Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
Directed by Peter Howitt, the film took $160m worldwide and was followed in 2011 by the sequel, Johnny English Reborn, directed by Oliver Parker.
Details of the third film are currently under wraps - it is part of Working Title’s burgeoning development slate. PI subscribers can log in to follow Johnny English 3 and all other film projects currently in development at the UK producing powerhouse.
Working Title’s most recent films to wrap production in the UK are both period dramas. Victoria and Abdul, starring Judi Dench and Ali Fazal, filmed in the UK and India from September last year, while Darkest Hour, which sees Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, shot in various UK locations including Yorkshire and Manchester.
The company also recently completed Entebbe, a re-telling of the real- life plane hijacking in1976 when an aircraft was taken hostage and made to divert to Entebbe in Uganda. Daniel Bruhl and Rosamund Pike star; filming took place in the UK and Malta.
